Located in central New York, Syracuse City School District (SCSD) is a progressive and highly diverse district. With refugee resettlement so prominent, Syracuse has been named a Sanctuary City. The 21,000 students speak over 80 languages – making for a rich teaching landscape. Dedicated to a balanced approach to school improvement, the district offers the same level of support to teachers, students, and their families.
Syracuse offers a robust two-week teacher induction program, and all first-year teachers are assigned a mentor for feedback and observation. Marked by an “opportunity culture,” the district offers many opportunities for teacher advancement into multi-classroom leadership or administration.
